The minimum fare of the ordinary bus had changed from Rs.4 to Rs.5. and in the case of Fast passenger it is changed from Rs.5 to Rs. 7. There is no much change for students concession fees. This hike had created a great mystery for the citizens. The government of Kerala should take a better decisions in controlling the hike in the bus charges. There is none to question the bus union. As the price of petrol and petroleum products increases the bus owner's union go for strike to increase the bus charge. Why to increase the bus charge as the buses are moving with diesel. This is to be very much taken in care by the ordinary people and necessary actions are to be made especially by the youths. For an ordinary person to travel for a short distance he must waste a five rupee note or a coin. Just before two years it was only Rs.3.
According to the transport minister V.S Shivakumar the hike was based on the report of justice Ramachandran Nair committee which was being appointed by the previous government for submitting the recomendation on the revised bus fare.
